Mad Science, a Portland-based organization, will present its "Spook-tacular Science Show" from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 16 at Rockport Opera House. The show is free and open to the public of all ages.

Prepare for science tricks and treats. Reach into a magic bag…Boo! That’s okay, it won’t bite. Learn how a spider dives to its doom and what can happen to a scientist if they do not follow proper safety rules. Marvel at the Foaming Jack O’ Lantern and listen for the wail of the banshee. Cauldrons of frothing witches brews, releasing ghosts from bottles and warlock potions will complete the experience of the most "maddening" and scientifically spooky Halloween ever!
